I'm one of the newbies on this forum, but do they(Tac Response) have something against ALG or something? Or just a coincidence someone noticed?
Well, other things to consider from the OP's story:
1) If true, the gun itself clearly had other issues that may have been a major contributing factor in the failure. The original FCG did not working properly either, after all. It may have had badly misaligned FCG holes, that would eventually cause issue with *any* FCG installed in the gun.
2) As a first post, posting a five paragraph story with the goal of criticizing a product, with no apparent desire to interact on the forum in any other meaningful way, seems pretty unusual.

I just installed an ALG in my SLR. Is there anyone else here with a few thousand rounds through their rifle with the ALG?

Scroll down to post 88...
Although it appears as if that disconnector has another hole near the disconnector spring hole in the opposite axis. Some pictures online have them with the hole, some without.
Edit, just checked mine, it has the hole...damnit.

Interesting. It looks like it began to shear a little and snapped. Could be it was too hard or that secondary hole could be a weak point. I'd like to think ALG tested the crap out of these before release. It could also be a problem with a specific gun (s) and the disco is bottoming out before it should. This seems like the most likely cause. Especially for it to break at such a low round count.

Maybe this was a design change that wasn't thoroughly tested?

The two ALG AKT sets that I have installed don't have a hole through the disconnector spring cup. They are both the first version without the heavier spring also. It seems this may be a change in the production post design and testing stage.

Does anyone know what the normal gap should be between the disconnector tail and the stop rivet on the bottom of the receiver once the hammer engages? Does the disconnector actually over travel at all or does the hammer latch on and prevent it from bottoming out? Mine has about 3/32" of a gap once the hammer latches on, however I can push the disconnector all the way to the rivet somewhat easily. I received an email response today from ALG when I asked about it:
"Good Afternoon Kyle,
Thank you for contacting us. We have tested the AK-T on a variety of rifles and have not had an issue. However, make sure that the disconnect is not hitting the rivet on the underside in such a way that it is causing issues. If this happens, you may have to fit the disconnect to make room for the rivet. I hope this helps. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Isn't there another thread from what sounds like the same person, who was wearing out Tapco triggers? I should go looking I guess.
I just bought two ALG sets, haven't decided which set to replace w/one of them to test. I have two w/G2 so I had thought about one of those, all Cugir WASR.
This will give me one each of Power Custom, Tapco, ALG, and an unmarked FCG I assume to be the standard trigger from Cugir. From what I see on the two posts concerning these FCG failures', I'm going to need a minimum of 5000 rounds per firearm. I want to do a controlled test, so I prefer the ammo to all be the same, I'm thinking Yugo, (M67 is it?), comes on strippers, easier to load.
I'm now accepting donations, ammo neatly packaged in Russian Aluminum Waffle or Bakelite magazines preferred, to save weight/shipping cost. However, I will accept sealed spam cans.

I thank you and Science thanks you, together, we can bring a close to this contensious subject, and get back to real concerns like Lamar and Kim.
